A nit subject but...
I had a friend that swears by just using % SOC on the front display. So, I tried it for a while and didn't find
it better or worse, just different. And then I realized why thinking in '% SOC' is a donkey of an idea.
Now that we have a lot of cars with 60kwh to 100kwh batteries if we all learn to monitor
range via %SOC rather than rated range we are screwed when we get into another Telsa with a different
size battery, or into another EV.... your intuition will be messed up.
If you know the rated range of a car you know where stand a lot better than just being told the % SOC.
So, unless you think you are going to own the same car with the same size battery for the rest of your
days you might want to stop using % SOC.....
I would prefer Tesla change ALL displays to rated range..e.g. Nav report, trip planner graph, etc.
I have a good idea how rated range drops with headwinds, rain, temp, etc and I think that intuition will
be pretty transferable to any EV for which I know the current rated range...better than % SOC for sure.
Ok, so can somebody that uses % SOC tell in more detail why they like it?
